Description

Screening with Motion Poems short film Once, April 13.

Set in a down-at-heel industrial town as deprived of culture as it is of working electricity and meaningful employment, Cowboys niftily blends social drama with absurdist comedy, as a bunch of provincial no-hopers stage an American Western as a musical. Among the performers: a mama’s-boy postal worker, a deeply closeted gay guy, a rough type who’s either a gypsy or a Serb or both, and a young woman who’s either soft in the head or a performance artist. Skillfully juggling tone and ambience, director Mrsic takes a few sly digs at the region’s enduring ethnic conflicts while affectionately goosing a genre that he also, to judge from the soundtrack, clearly loves as much as he does the people and the place his movie lampoons.
